The same man who thought adorable puppies would solve San Francisco's panhandling problem is now saying that soccer could do what former Mayor Gavin Newsom could not: end homelessness.
Like that. Only homeless.
The city's Recreation and Parks Department just announced it was partnering with the Mayor's Homeless czar Bevan Dufty and Street Soccer USA to kick off the city's very first street soccer team for the homeless.
Officially, the city plans to host the Street Soccer USA West Coast Cup in San Francisco, in hopes that homeless folks will start getting a little bit of physical exercise (although that goal is pretty universal).
